Clint Dunford

Clint Dunford made a long lasting impact on the province of Alberta as a volunteer, business professional and in his public life as Minister of Economic Development, Minister of Human Resources and Employment and Minister of Advanced Education and Career Development.

Clint Dunford died on October 14, 2021 at the age of 78.

Clint will be remembered for the contributions he made as the MLA for Lethbridge-West and for serving as a Minister of the Crown. Notably, he will be remembered for the contributions he made to benefit the post-secondary sector as Minister of Advanced Education. He was instrumental as a champion of the Campus Alberta concept — an initiative which harnessed the collective capacity of Alberta’s post-secondary institutions and created new pathways of learning for thousands of college and university students.

Following his political career, Clint continued to support our community through the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, Canadian Cancer Society’s Walk for Life and the Dhillon School of Business advisory board. Clint’s knowledge of government processes, business acumen and the willingness to give his time and talent greatly benefitted many southern Alberta organizations and made us stronger as a community.

In 2011, the University of Lethbridge awarded Clint an honorary degree in recognition of his service to our province and sector.


Clint Dunford was the honouree of the 2011 Management Dinner, and the Clint Dunford Scholarship was established with the funds raised.
